As a former, two-term PTA-President, I know the importance of fund-raising. As a parent, I know the frustration of over-priced cookie dough and wrapping paper. As school budgets across the country face deeper and deeper cuts, fundraising is taking a higher profile. One of the most simple and still lucrative fund-raising programs is Box Tops for Education. Most of us are consumers of the top-brands that offer the Box Top and from there, we simply need to clip and send to school. That Box Top gives the classroom ten-cents.
My kiddos love clipping Box Tops for Education as we are preparing dinner together or when they see them. They are easy for friends and family to also save for you. As a former Box Tops for Education Coordinator at our school, I saw first hand how quickly these Box Tops for Education added up–classrooms were bringing in 1,000+ per month.
Facial tissues are a staple supply for most classrooms; by purchasing Kleenex Brand facial tissue with Box Tops for Education, you can help provide other staples for the school. In fact, Kleenex is the only facial tissue brand that participates in the Box Tops for Education program. Each Box Top you send to your school’s representative earns ten cents for the school which may not sound like much but it adds up! Over the past two decades, more than 90,000 schools have raised more than $525 million though Box Tops for Education and Kleenex Brand has contributed $23 million to date.
Box Tops for Education is a great way to raise money for your school. It doesn’t involve anything more than clipping the Box Top from your already favorite brands and sending to your child’s school.
